Dirty BIG Myth 3
To get healthy, you need to drink alkaline water or alkaline food.
How many times have you hear from your well-meaning naturopath that you are too acid?
Let me tell you that if you’re sick or unhealthy, alkalising with alkaline water or food is NOT THE ANSWER!
But don’t take my word for it, meet Janine instead.
Janine had been killing her stomach acid with expensive alkalinising products and supplements.
Her presenting symptoms were back pain in the region of her kidneys (the middle of her back).
She was getting very forgetful and her family worried about early onset Alzheimer’s.
On questioning I discovered that Janine had over alkalised herself which was causing her kidneys to hurt. (This is more common than you think.)
I explained to her that different parts of us are designed to be extremely acidic.
Our stomach needs to be more acidic than a car battery to blast the nutrients from our food and to kill bacteria and parasites.
The large intestine needs to be acidic to prevent it from being taken over by moulds growing on the inside, and to protect it from harmful bacteria.
Our skin is also very acidic. When it loses its acidity, you are prone to infections, acne and blemishes.
Even our bladder needs an acidic environment to prevent or cure infections.
Luckily for Janine, her back pain disappeared the next day after she started her Betaine HCL regime.
Janine was in her mid- fifties and our stomach generally become less acidic as we age.
Studies have shown that seniors suffering from dementia have a greater proportion of pathogenic bacteria in their intestinal tract.
If our stomach fires aren’t burning fiercely like they should, the whole digestive tract must overcompensate. This leads to stresses in our gut environment, our immune system to our brain.
Our brain expression is controlled to a very large degree by our gut bacteria.
Our ratio of beneficial or bad gut bacteria is influenced by our stomach acid
So you see how everything is linked together?
Now that you know that you will NEVER FULLY RECOVER unless you have good hydrochloric acid levels isn’t it time you invest in some Betaine HCL?
It is also very affordable…. One bottle contains 240 capsules which will last you for several months.
I really can’t wait for you to start feeling better….
